Bring an old dog into your life and experience how amazing they are. Old Souls take in a lot of dogs during the summer but to stay in compliance with county regulations, they need to foster or adopt some out before they take in more. When you foster or adopt from Old Souls you affect 2 lives - the one you are taking into your home and the one we will be able to take into our rescue in his/her place. Tractor Supply Company will host this adoption event. Call 928-362-2364 for more information.
